    Here are directions for a prayer rug that was given to me by a friend. It says to use polyester double knit, but I suppose you could do it with any fabric. But polyester would wear better and have more loft to it. It is nice with many different colors. I wish I had a picture to show, but I don't.

    Rug

    Made from polyester double knit


    Oval shape 22 inches wide and 34 inches long. Base was heavy canvas or duck or something sturdy like that.

    The middle line was about 12 inches long. The polyester fabric is cut into 2 inch squares then folded in half diagonally. They are sewn onto the base with the point over lapping the one ahead of it just a little. The middle line is just sewn straight and then start the oval from there. The sewing lines are approximately inch apart.

    There were 22 rows on each side of the middle. It can be made with many different colors.

    There is a poem that goes with the rug, calling it a prayer rug.

    Prayer

    I’m a little prayer rug,
    And I’ll protect your knees
    From dust and dirt and little bugs
    And splinters from flat trees

    Every morning when you wake
    And before you go to sleep
    Kneel on me and talk to Him
    Instead of counting sheep

    Prayer can be your lifeline
    When you are in need
    He’ll bless you and protect you.
    You, His lamb, He’ll feed.

    So thank Him for His blessings
    Talk to Him each day.
    He promised He would guide us
    And help us find the way.
